Johannesburg - Four people, including two young girls, were hit by a car in Vanderbijlpark, south of Johannesburg, while returning from a school function, paramedics said on Friday.

Two of them, including one of the children, were in a critical condition, said ER24 spokesperson Christo Venter.

All four were hospitalised. The girls are both 5-years-old.

"The father [in his 40s] of one of the girls is critical. His daughter sustained minor injuries.

"Another woman and a girl, who are not related, were also hit by the same car. The woman suffered minor injuries but that girl is critical."

The accident happened around 19:00 in Everest Street in Vanderbijlpark on Thursday.

"They were going home from a school function and were crossing the road when the collision happened," said Venter.

The injured were taken to Sebokeng Hospital.
